“The essence of Irish hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

We originally stayed here in 1989 then 1994 then again in 2013. We were we were astonished and delighted that it was as good as we remembered and that they had the same staff and owner. This place has exemplary food and service. We have dined in many restaurants but agree with other reviews that the chef's food is memorable, quintessentially Irish and of a very high quality - better that many top hotels. Do not expect WiFi and other modern gadgetry, instead let go and just enjoy this hotel; there are few like this left.

We recently stayed for one night at Newport House. If you are expecting a modern hotel this is not for you. If you want to feel that you are staying in a stately old manor than you've picked the perfect spot. Facing the river and a few minutes walk down the drive to the village it is in a perfect location. Although we didn't fish we would definitely do so on a future visit as the house is famous for it's salmon fishing rights to the river.
The staff at the house couldn't be more pleasant yet professional. The dinner offered many selections and the service, food and wine choices were great. After dinner tea/coffee in the drawing room with the lovely fire capped off a wonderful culinary experience. Breakfast was of the same high caliber and we would return here just to dine. Newport House has an old world charm that isn't easy to replicate. Kudos to all the staff who create a very warm and inviting environment!

Just returned from a Salmon fishing trip with three friends. Its our 4th trip ! Its not about the Salmon fishing anymore...well it is...but it isnt..its just the whole experience. Newport House is olde worlde as it should be and the staff, the food, the fishing, Newport House itself just ooouze class. Do expect flat screen TVs and stuff like that..expect high ceilings...salmon and pike in cages, fabulous artwork, deep carpets and all you would expect from a stately home.
The food was exceptional and between Catherine and Cahill and the rest of the house you just have to try it !

Room Tip: Call them up and ask !

Just back from 4 days salmon fishing and eating like a king. Stayed in the hotel for 3rd year in a row and cannot recommend the experience highly enough. All the staff are fantastic and John the chef is one of the best I've encountered, out performing many of the top end restaurants that I use in London.
If you want a unique and thoroughly enjoyable dinner, break or fishing escape head straight for Newport House.

Room Tip: Any room on the front has excellent views over the river

Four of us had dinner at Newport House and could not have been more impressed with the food and the service. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. The food was wonderful and imaginatively prepared and served. Catherine who I believe is the manager was one of the most delightful people I have ever met. It was a perfect meal in such beautiful surroundings. Thank you Newport House!

Went for dinner and didnt stay (so cant comment on the rooms) but the restaurant is first class with a huge wine list (take your Bordeaux wine guide with you to navigate it). Ok its quite expensive but you get what you pay for. The welcome and service makes you feel like a valued regular.

Had evening dinner here recently and it was a lot more than just dinner, it was and experience of a life time. I never experienced anything like it before. The food was out of this world, the service was like something you would see in the movies. I could go on and on but one has to experience it to see what I am talking about.
